1975: I was born on the 24 December.
1994: Diploma Degree as "Ragioniere Programmatore e Perito Commerciale" at the Istituto Tecnico Commerciale Statale per Programmatori “Blaise Pascal” of Teramo with an overall rate of 60/60.
24 July 2001: Laurea Degree in Computer Science at the University of L'Aquila with an overall rate of 110/110 "cum laude". Thesis' title: “Algoritmi di scheduling online per l'ottimizzazione del tempo di esecuzione e della memoria richiesta” (advisor: Prof. Michele Flammini).
Starting from the first University year 1994/95 until the Academic year 1999/2000 I was assigned a fellowship from the ADSU for an overall period of six consecutive years. The first criterion used to assign such fellowships was the merit.
1 March 2002 - 28 February 2005: Ph.D. Student in Computer Science at the Computer Science Department of the University of L'Aquila. I have been assigned a three year lasting fellowship.
14 October - 12 November 2003: Visitor at the Graduate School of Industrial Administration of the Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh PA. Hosted by Prof. R.Ravi.
3 September 2004: I won a position as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics "Ennio De Giorgi" of the University of Lecce.
15 November - 31 December 2004 and 21 Jenuary - 20 February 2005: Visitor at the University of Patras, Greece. Hosted by Prof. Christos Kaklamanis.
1 Jenuary 2005: Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics "Ennio De Giorgi" of the University of Lecce.
6 June 2005: Ph.D. in Computer Science awarded by the University of L'Aquila with an overall rate of "ottimo/ottimo". Thesis' title: "Pricing and Equilibria in Non-cooperative Networks", advisor: Prof. Michele Flammini.
20 September 2005: Best Italian Ph.D. thesis of 2005 in Theoretical Computer Science for the track of Algorithms and Formal Languages awarded by the Italian EATCS.
I follwed a curriculum of study called "Decisioning Models" coordinated by Prof. Claudio Arbib, where I came involved not only with Theoretical Computer Science, but also with a great part of Combinatorial Optimization and Operations Research.
My research interests are mainly focused on theory of algorithms and selfish routing in non-cooperative networks.
2002-2003: Member of the Italian COFIN Research Project: "Resource Allocation on Wireless Networks (REAL-WINE)".
